Being a loyal mariner fan since 2000, I've experienced many disappointing seasons, but the start to this season is the worst I could remember. I am writing this during the mariner game which they are down 6- 0 with Felix pitching facing the Angels who have lost 7 in a row. Pretty pathetic, huh? Going into this season, I was believing that they would win the division and make a run in the playoffs with their top of the rotation strength. I also thought the AL west would be a tough division with 3 teams going to win 90+ games. Not only was I wrong about them winning the division, but I was also not right about AL west being good. It makes the mariners season even more disappointing to think if we just played .500 ball we would be the favorites to go first. Give up hope mariner fans because you know you're not a good team when your team has as much home runs as Kelly Johnson. The mariner curse strikes once again; no matter how good our offseason is, it will just be another year will want to forget about.
